Dramatic shot, huh? This was taken by Bert vanBaar during the Noordenraid. That's a Newfoundland Trap Skiff he built leading the way. Bert has built quite a number of our designs with his students at the Enkhuizer School for Wooden Boatbuilding in the Netherlands. The quality of their workmanship never fails to impress.

Wonder where the Trap Skiff went? Never fear, she didn't go far.

Duck Trap Decoys

We do a fair amount of custom work. A client sent us some drawings and wanted us to do a "Pilot Gull" as a present for his wife. This little guy s the result. We've carved a number of gulls over the years, but never before one quite like this.

About Us...

We've been in business here in Lincolnville Beach, Maine, since 1970.

On the map you'll find us on the shore of Penobscot Bay
about midway between Portland and Mt. Desert Island
...and in case you wondered, our company name derives from
the original name for this town.
Today, Duck Trap Village is situated within the
Town of Lincolnville.

We're primarily boatbuilders, but these days devote most of our time
to helping others build their own boats.
It's not an exaggeration to say that our plans come with free email and phone support.
